Good cocktails, great steaks, delicious sides. Costs a pretty penny but here it was worth it. The personalized menu for my friend's birthday was an added touch that he and his wife appreciated.

Dining at it's finest! Mouth watering steaks prepared impeccably. Everything about this place is first class. Can't dine here enough. The Monday night menu is special, but every night is a great night to indulge yourself. Love it!

One of the most disappointing birthday dinner's I've had. We were seated at the worst table in the house (noticeably smaller than the other tables with the same headcount and awkwardly wedged right up against a stone wall in the middle of a walkway) - table location was like an afterthought (and it made us feel that way too). Service was decent; food was flavorful (although the foie gras was teeny tiny and the fish was deceivingly described in the menu). The only nod to my birthday was a note stating "Happy Birthday" on my menu. Not a memorable experience at all -- we won't be returning.

Beautiful restaurant but disappointed with the food.

My husband and I received a gift card to Forbes Mill for Xmas and we were very excited to finally try this place. We've both lived in the Bay Area all of our lives and have always heard that Forbes Mill is one of the places to go for a great steak. Our 5 year anniversary was coming up and I thought it would be just the right occasion to celebrate our special day here. Reservations made on Open Table were easy, they called the morning of to confirm our reservation and even asked for the spelling of our names since I noted it was our anniversary.

When we arrived, we were seated fairly quickly and it was a lovely surprise to see they printed a custom menu card w/ a Happy Anniversary greeting w/ both of our names. That was def a nice touch. Our waiter, Carlos, greeted us promptly and was very informative about the menu.

We ordered the Oysters on the half shell for the appetizers, which were good. He ordered the Filet and Prawns and I ordered the Sea Bass. The plates came out timely but when we went to try the food, I thought the Filet was not seasoned very well. It was also not very hot, it was not cold by any means but seemed like it may have sat for a little too long before it came out because it was just warm. The cook on it was indeed medium like we asked but again, the flavor was just of the meat, didn't taste much salt and pepper and I felt like that was extremely lacking to really bring out the best of such a great cut. The prawns were a good size but eaten alone (and not dipped into the garlic butter which was in a cup on the plate) also tasted very plain. The mashed potatoes that the prawns were resting on were beautifully smooth but again did not have much flavor. Not buttery tasting, not enough seasoning. It just seemed like everything on his plate was very lackluster which was let down because it looked delicious.
Sad to say we will not be back nor will we recommend to friends.

It was really great. They gave us a specially customized menu since it was our anniversary that had our names printed on it with an anniversary theme decoration, really special gesture. The server was excellent, the food was a culinary experience, Especially my all time favorite and rare to find Passion Fruit Cheesecake for dessert. I ate it very slowly to savor every bite.
The coffee creme Brule was also amazing. Top notch.

I don't usually go out to expensive restaurants, i only went because the dinner was partially covered by a gift card I received from a friend. Getting a dinner for 2 for $200 may be standard fare for a steak house, but that's more than i wanted to spend. That's just of a personal spending choice though. It was excellent food, and I've never had prime rib before.

Very fun

Disappointed. Had the Rib eye that was not bone in. Meat was good, but nothing exceptional. In previous years, that was not the case. This cut was always excellent in the past. Spinach was super.

I loved that they let me book a party of seven on Open Table. They did call me the day of to confirm, which was fine. They put us in a room by ourselves, which was very helpful as one of us is hearing impaired. The server was friendly and attentive. The food was very good, though I could do with a bit less pepper and more salt on my filet. We will be back to try the Wagyu beef.

This restaurant ALWAYS offers amazing food. We usually get the same thing (the kobe thing, called something else), but this time I tried the rib eye with blue cheese. I'm still dreaming about it, it was that good. Highest quality of meat, cooked to perfection = best restaurant in town. It is expensive, but you are never disappointed.

The steak was over cooked. The cocktails were not done properly. The brussel sprouts were mushy.
That said the service was phenomenal! Very attentive. When they brought out mushrooms errantly for the app, she quickly brought out the right appetizer.

It was an amazing experience. I proposed to my husband that night. The staff called me beforehand to confirm the reservation as well as any special request. Let me know how to hint the waiter to get the ring. The service is extremely well. The food is better than amazing. We have the special trio and lobster tail. So delicious. At the end they even surprised us with how they decorate the desert plate with the ring on top.
